Descrizione
This is a portrayal of work in the needle trades in Canada. The story of gender dynamics in an industry numerically dominated by women but run by men. The book tries to explain the subtle dynamics of gender discrimination that pervades the shops, the union and relations with the manufacturers. The interaction of gender and ethic culture provide a backdrop to the volatile lives of men and women who worked in the needle trades during the first 40 years of this century.
